Manufacturer Provided Description
To expand sailing horizons with a modern sportboat in open waters outside protected harbors and lakes, there's only one choice: J/80. Sailing World magazine rated J/80 as easier to handle, less intimidating, safer and better suited for sailing offshore than other modern sportboats tested. Numbers highlight the reason: the 1440-pound lead keel with bulb on the J/80 weighs nearly the same as the leading competitor's entire boat. The most important standard when it comes to a forgiving design, family sailing fun and sailing in open waters is stability. The J/80 is certified for Design Category B of the EU Recreational Craft Directive of the ISO (International Standards Organization) which states that qualifying boats are designed for waves up to 13 feet high with winds to 41 knots, or conditions which may be encountered on offshore voyages of sufficient length or on coasts where shelter may not always be immediately available. These conditions may also be experienced on inland seas (or lakes) of sufficient size for the wave height to be generated. Other monohull sportboats with retractable sprits under 30 feet are rated for Category C, designed for waves of less than 7 feet and winds less than 33 knots or conditions which might be encountered on exposed inland waters, in estuaries, and in coastal waters in moderate weather conditions. J/80 combines simplicity of operation, confidence building, stability, and 15-knot spinnaker rides in an affordable, low maintenance and trailerable package. It even has 4 berths and a 12-foot-long cockpit. Sailors can try one out or refine their skills with expert instructions, prior to delivery of their own boat, at a J World Sailing School in Annapolis or San Diego.
